Anxious For Nothing
Sundays, June 6 – July 18 @ 10:30 – 12pm | Workbook: $5
Does the uncertainty and chaos of life keep you up at night? Is irrational anxiety your constant companion? Let God help you win the war on worry and receive the lasting peace of Christ. We all encounter anxiety, but we don’t have to let worry and fear control our lives. Anxious for Nothing, by Max Lucado, provides a roadmap for battling with and healing from anxiety. Anxious for Nothing invites readers to delve into Philippians 4:6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” In this group, we celebrate God’s goodness; ask God for help; leave your concerns with God; meditate on good things; and stop letting anxiety rule the day.
Beyond Boundaries: Learning To Trust Again in Relationships
Thursdays, June 17 – July 22 @ 7pm – 8:30pm | Workbook: $10
In this six-session small group bible study, Dr. John Townsend (author of the book: Beyond Boundaries: Learning to Trust Again in Relationships) helps you discover a simple path to regain the intimacy and fulfilling closeness that every person needs. Difficult relationships can damage our ability to trust, causing us to shut down. But God designed us to experience freedom and love. To live this way, we all eventually need to take a risk.
After six books on Boundaries, bestselling author Dr. John Townsend realized that, though people who experienced tough relationships may put up an emotional wall to protect themselves, they often have no idea how to reconnect - either with the person who has damaged their trust, or with new relationships. This group is designed to learn what it takes to reconnect.
This group will run for 6 weeks; we will watch a brief video each week and have a discussion afterwards. We will also utilize a participant workbook for this group.
About The Group Leader
As coordinator for the Breakthrough Support Group Ministry, Genevieve LoCicero and her team have facilitated a variety of groups. She has a heart to reach people that are hurting in all different areas. Her willingness to offer help and hope gently yet persistently through Breakthrough speaks well of her heart for the troubles of others. Breakthrough services are guided by Romans 12:1-2 which exhorts us to renew our minds. By doing so, we are able to live in a way that is pleasing to the Lord. Renewing our mind impacts emotions which in turn impacts behaviors and results in a life changed.
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. - Romans 12:1-2
